WWE announced Friday that "Rowdy" Ronda Rousey will take part in the company's tour across Europe in May.

Rousey is set to compete on May 16 in Geneva, Switzerland; May 17 in Vienna, Austria; May 18 in Turin, Italy; and May 19 in Paris, France.

She made her WWE in-ring debut at WrestleMania 34 in a winning effort over Triple H and Stephanie McMahon alongside tag team partner Kurt Angle.

WWE has yet to announce who Rousey will face on the European tour.

At WrestleMania, the former UFC star exceeded expectations and helped create some of the most memorable moments of the show.

Rousey notably decimated Triple H with punches and an armbar before forcing McMahon to tap with an armbar later in the match.

She followed that up by once again placing McMahon in her vaunted armbar the following night on Raw.

The 31-year-old is an Olympic bronze medalist in judo, and she was the first women's bantamweight champion in UFC history.
